Smashed windows on the rise in Dalby
SMASHING through windows has become the preferred method of breaking into properties during March.
Dalby Police have noticed a trend in the region of shop-front windows being damaged by would-be buglers and vandals.
Between March 7-21, nine properties were broken into in Dalby, most with a similar mode of entrance.
Senior Sergeant Terry McCullough said several investigations are being conducted by police from crimes this month.
"We have seen in the recent spate of offences, business windows being smashed-in, which is a new mode of entry for Dalby,” Snr-Sgt McCullough said.
"We have seen an increase in break-and-enters, and hopefully we will catch the offenders.”
Snr-Sgt McCullough said there was no outstanding reason why business windows were being targeted.
Businesses including the Dalby Hotel-Motel, Forbes Realty, Insync Fitness and Training and the Dalby Herald have been broken into this month.
Dalby Police have urged residents to phone the Dalby Police station on 46699222 or Police Link on 131444 if they have any information in regards to crimes in town.
